We are true recruiters who strategically target and influentially engage premier talent on your behalf, personally, with charisma and finesse. Because we’re so well recognized in the HFM community, doors open for us that stay closed to less familiar search firms, no matter what their reputation in generic healthcare recruiting. (By the way we’re not offended by the term “headhunter.” That’s exactly what true recruiters are. Most of the offended, ironically, are NOT headhunters at all. They are search advertisers and wide net casters.)
We deliver Top 5% HFM Talent™. This describes FM Sage’s unyielding talent commitment. Candidates that meet this ambitious standard are: 1) formally educated and well credentialed, 2) proven people developers, 3) vetted program innovators, 4) articulate communicators, and 5) owners of a documented portfolio of meaningful HFM accomplishments. These top players are well prepared to collaborate productively with senior leaders on Day One. Or to put it another way, Top 5%ers are the painstakingly revealed prodigies that really make things happen.
We deliver the desired profile. Our candidates’ demeanor, temperament and leadership style will have been matched with your organization’s culture and the nuanced requirements you’ve communicated. Our candidate evaluation regimen is rigorous, comprehensive and revealing. Before you ever say hello to an FM Sage candidate, they will have been vetted to a level that far exceeds the due diligence of all but the finest executive search firms.
We work FAST, delivering 3-4 candidates within 7-10 days. Compared to search industry convention this is lightning fast productivity out of the gate. Then, we develop more candidates when appropriate. The point is you should be ready to field candidates immediately. Our legendary speed is enabled by FM Sage’s singular focus, efficient process, and our one-of-a-kind database. We’re in touch with the most distinguished HFM leaders across all 50 states.
We rescue searches in distress. The longer a search drags on, the more suspect and tainted it becomes in the eyes of the regional talent pool. If you’ve been looking for 10-12 weeks, and are still not inviting select candidates in for final interviews, something is wrong. Whatever challenges must be overcome, we know exactly how to respond so that the talent well is not poisoned. We routinely redefine and reenergize stalled searches, and validate job opportunities as highly desirable – but please, don’t further delay calling us when you are in this situation.
Our confidentiality exceeds the norm. We maintain the utmost confidentiality regarding our clients. You will never see FM Sage publicly identify them. (Nor do we advertise searches, publicly post search details, or use email blasts to enlist candidates.) True recruiters don’t seek to generate publicity or invite the masses to apply. We approach desirable candidates personally, privately, one-on-one. We work in a mode that preserves the propriety of everyone we touch.
Our streamlined contract is concise and EASY to review. It is a simple 2-page document that you and/or your legal department can rapidly digest. Clients often compliment us on how simple it is to add FM Sage Partners as a vendor. (We also remain open to reviewing your vendor agreement.)
